is virginia, which the latest election polls show remains a tossup. traditionally red, it turned blue, voting for president obama in 2008 with a big boost from northern virginians. margaret warner sat down with six undecided voters there after watching the president's address. >> warner: this same group sat down with ray suarez raft week to assess governor romney's speech and said afterwards they remained undecided. tom wilson, 46, is an independent who voted for president obama in 2008. he says he's most concerned about the economy and what he calls conservative value issues. ben harris, a 21-year-old college student is casting his first vote. he supported john mccain last time and is especially concerned with education. beth hersom, 30, is a registered democrat who considers herself a swing voter. she voted for the president previously but she opposes abortion, and didn't like the way his health care reform law dealt with contraception. annabel foery, 64, voted republican in the last two election, but she said he isn't sure she trusts governor romney and wants to see more cooperation on bot
of the a.f.l.-c.i.o., richard trumpica, and the founder of cared max, a virginia brewer, and we'll also hear from the heads of the senatorial and congressional campaign committees. the democrats are trying to take back the house of representatives and keep their hold on the senate, and of course, the main attraction tonight, former president bill clt. >> woodruff: thank you, ray. >> woodruff: with us tonight once again are shields and brooks. that's syndicated columnist mark shields and "new york times" columnist david brooks. david, we're looking ahead to bill clinton tonight. people, meanwhile, are still talking about the first lady last night. >> it seems to be unanimous. mark and i were not in the minority. pretty much a home run. i read some very conservative web sites -- fox-- it was bipartisan. american yiewt owe united. they thought she did a fantastic jork as did i. >> ifill: the fact that she did a fantastic job, mark, assuming we all agree, what difference did that mack in the long run? >> it makes a difference in one of the great advantages barack obama has had over mitt rom
tell the story as the campaign enters its final 50 days. president obama heads to florida and virginia, and romney heads once again to florida. we're joined by susan page and dan balz, chief correspondent for the "washington post." susan, we have been all consuming this daily diet of polls especially from the battle ground states. presumably the romney campaign and the obama campaign have been doing the same thing. do they interpret those numbers the same way we have been? >> well, i think that both campaigns see a small bump for president obama coming out of the conventions, although it's going a little narrower. in these three most critical battle ground states -- ohio, florida and virginia -- you do see obama having a slight advantage, a slightly bigger advantage than he had before. i think this is very worrisome to the romney folks and quite encouraging to the obama side. >> ifill: what do the romney people say about all that? >> they say a couple of things. they think that the bounce was overinterpretted that the president got after his convention. late last week they expected the
of those researchers studying this new class of substances at virginia commonwealth university. he joins me now from richmond. thank you for being with us. and let me just start by saying when people hear the term "bath salts" maybe they think of epsom salts that you would buy in a pharmacy or drugstore but this is very different. tell us what they are. >> well, you're right it's very different than the name implies. it's a benign street name i think invented to make it sound harmless. these chemicals are very different and very dangerous than their name implies. >> woodruff: how long have they been around? >> they became popular a few years ago, at least in america. they've been around longer in eastern europe and the u.k. and the basic component of the drug-- which is called kethanone and the derivatives have been around hundreds and maybe even thousands of years. it's a naturally occurring substance from which bath salts are derived. >> woodruff: so tell us, dr. de felice, how are they used and how are they different from other illegal drugs we're familiar hearing about, methamphetamine,
. in virginia, 143%. and in colorado, ad spending has jumped by 146%. there's more. in seven days >> ifill: and there's more. in seven days, from september 13 to september 19, the romney campaign spent $425,000 in battleground colorado on 1,283 ads. the obama campaign spent $1.1 million on 2,891 ads. that's statewide. narrow the focus to one city, colorado springs, and the change is even more dramatic. at this time four years ago, 519 presidential campaign ads had aired in this top ten ad market. this year, the number jumped to 1,445. the newshour is partnering with kantar media/cmag and npr to keep track of all that spending. npr reporter ari shapiro spent the past week in colorado springs watching those television ads and talking to the voters who consume them. he joins us now. 395 million dollars. let's start with that number, ari. what is that all being spent on really? >> tv stations have a limited number of minutes for advertising. so you are seeing more ads per hour and you're seeing ads in different shows where you didn't used to. you know, game shows, soap operas, reality tv progr
tour through ohio this afternoon. >> sreenivasan: the u.s. supreme court upheld west virginia's congressional redistricting plan today. critics of the redistricting had argued that the populations within newly drawn districts were too far out of balance, but the supreme court reversed a lower court ruling and said the state legislatures was correct in trying to keep counties intact, keep incumbents from facing each other, and minimize shifts in population. the lower court may still consider challenges to the plan under the state constitution. in economic news, a key index showed home prices rose again in july-- another sign the housing market is on the road to recovery. and a separate index had consumer confidence rising in september. but it wasn't enough to help wall street, amid new worries about spain's debt troubles. the dow jones industrial average lost 101 points to close at 13,457. the nasdaq fell 43 points to close above 3117. the national football league faced an explosion of calls today to end a labor dispute with its referees after a mistake decided the green bay- s
presidential nominee mitt romney. at a campaign stop in springfield, virginia he said the slow growth was proof that president obama's economic policies have not worked. >> if you don't believe me why look at the price of gas and the jobs in your community and the members of your family that are struggling for good work. if you don't believe me look at the numbers that just came out in the growth of our economy. 1.3% versus russia at 4%, china at 7-8%, we are at 1.3% this is unacceptable. it is not working. i know what it takes to get things working. >> sreenivasan: 200 miles away in virginia beach, president obama acknowledged the economy is still struggling. but he also promised the crowd he'll push for an era of what he called economic patriotism. >> during campaign season you always hear a lot about patriotism. well you know what? it's time for a new economic patriotism. an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. i won't pretend that getting there is easy. the truth is it's going to take a few more years to solve chal
seized on the change in springfield, virginia. >> we are at 1.3%. this is... this is unacceptable. >> woodruff: other economic indicators also paint a mixed picture. the stock market itself, while down today, has been climbing in recent weeks to its highest levels in nearly five years. today, the dow jones industrial average lost almost 49 points after a weak manufacturing report and worries over europe to close just over 13,437. and the housing market may be stabilizing. a key index showed home prices rose in july to the highest level in almost two years, pointing to a recovery there. consumer spending was also up last month, but it was largely to pay for higher gasoline prices. for a closer look at all this with two people who follow these matters closely, we turn to kenneth rogoff, a professor of economics and public policy at harvard university, and co- author of "this time, it's different: eight centuries of financial folly"; and muhamed el-erian, c.e.o. of pimco, a global investment management firm, one of world's largest bond investors. gentlemen, thank you to both of you f
